Bishop David Oyedepo of Winner’s Chapel is said to have declared his unflinching support for President Goodluck Jonathan’s re-election bid.
Oyedepo reportedly also said: ‘I pray that God will grant President Jonathan the unusual grace to meet the demand of his office.”
Jonathan on his part addressed the congregation saying:
“I don't want to talk much before I am accused of coming to Church to campaign for election. I plead with you all to keep praying for successful and peaceful election next month.”
“There are various predictions concerning the election, but I trust God to take control of the situation. I commend Bishop Oyedepo for his commitment to the work of God and education, without education we can't achieve much,” he added.
Oyedepo is a known ally of the President and has accompanied him on pilgrimage to Israel and for a top secret meeting with former President, Olusegun Obasanjo and the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Enoch Adeboye.
